This blog posts one image, daily, of gathered natural objects found near me. Near me usually means Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota, my home. Sometimes it means the Gulf Coast of Florida, and sometimes Grand Marais, Minnesota, on the north shore of Lake Superior. Sometimes it also means the Languedoc region of Southwest France.

Still blog is a place to stop. A place to look at one thing at a time. A place to be still.

I sent my first image out into the universe on January 1, 2012 hoping that I would enjoy the discipline of producing a photo a day, and hoping that a few kindred wanderers might find their way here. Who could have guessed that thousands of you would come share your morning coffee with me every day? Who would have guessed that every walk with my kids or my dog would turn into a Still blog treasure hunt? Who could have guessed that design*sponge would come knocking? Who could have guessed that Martha Stewart would do a feature? Not me! I can only say thank you.

I would love to see these images used by designers and artists worldwide.  Visit the “shop” button for elegant, Still blog-inspired prints, textiles, stitched wall-hangings, themed card collections, and other products ideas available licensing.

Animals and parts of animals appear in this blog. In cases where live animals were photographed, they were released unharmed. In cases where fur, feathers, bones, and skin appear in this blog, the owners were found already deceased, and, I hope, have been respectfully commemorated.
